Thats a good thing - you can buy a reader with the money you will save on Electric bills!

So with these new formats becoming available, and for those of you more familiar with the other ebook stores/sources than myself, where are the best places to go to get books in ePub or Adobe DE, without having to go through conversion processes?

I see Feedbooks is one place I can go, where else?

How long before Sony comes out with the PRS-510 and abandons the 505 like they have already abandoned the 500. Glad I upgraded from the 500 to the Cybook Gen3. Wouldn't go back to Sony for love or money.

Well, good news only if they also updated the metadata/browsing system. I wouldn't carry 13,000 books with me using the current system.

U.S. military uses 24-hour time format, though without a delimiter. E.g. 1410 ("fourteen ten"). I'm not sure why many americans think that's the only place where 24-hour time is used

I would like to see them try and browse through that...
Well at least it gives more space for some music for anyone who doesn't mind the loss of battery time.

How very strange . We use it all the time in "everyday life".

Thanks for the explanation!

Unlike most (all?) of Europe, in the U.S. almost nobody but the military uses 24 hour time, so to most U.S. Citizens "24 Hour Time" equates to "Military Time".

Harry, At least in the U.S. if you say 14:00 to someone that hasnt been in or around the military they just look at you funny. Or you can see them trying to do the math in their head. Because normally it is just 2 in the morning or 2 in the afternoon.
